Happy 4th of July!

I wish all of you a happy 4th of July!  Kristine is in Dallas celebrating with her dad and mutti, I am sure they will have a lovely day :-)

Last night I had a bit of fun in the sewing room.... I have been wanting to make the Dresden pillow from Sherri's book " A quilting life", so I started cutting ( while watching Sue Daley's you tube video intro to paper piecing...) Multitasking works great!

The I arranged the pieces to see how they would look...

And started to sew.... ( my this time the Sue Daley video was done and I was listening to music.....)

Look how pretty they are all chain stitched together :-)

And voilà- a cute little Dresden plate...
And I have more pieces left over, so I'll make another one to have a set of matching pillows.  Maybe I'll have time to finish them over the weekend!  I'll keep you posted :-)
Thank you for stopping by- I'm heading off to work- have a wonderful day!


  1. Happy 4th of July to you ! Wish you were here. Your very busy and I wish I could be. Ray has taken ill, we just brought him home yesterday but he may have to go back. I was so hoping that things were looking up in the sewing room but I don't have time to go in there at all. Just thinking of you all. Hugs,Marie

  2. I will be stitching on red, white, and blue projects today and staying home out of all the traffic.

  3. Gorgeous fabrics there Anne Heidi, and the Dresden is looking lovely too, they will make up into very pretty items x


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I really appreciate it!
